Weird Science DC Comics Comic Books of the Week 10/15/16



Another week and while I kind of looked at this as a down week, the amount of books in this list kind of speaks to something different.  Maybe I'm just being a Negative Nancy...It wouldn't be the first or the last time that's been suggested.  Here's the Weird Science Books of the Week...




Red Hood and the Outlaws #3
Score: 9.0/10

What Jim Said:

Red Hood and the Outlaws continues being one of my favorite Rebirth titles and we haven't even gotten the full Outlaws up and running!  Scott Lobdell and Dexter Soy make this book so much fun to read, even when the story itself is far from lighthearted.  The only thing I'd change about this book is getting it twice a month! Read Full Review



Doom Patrol #2
Score: 9.0/10

What Reggie Said:

The reintroduction of some favorite characters brings the usual chaos and confusion that seems to surround Casey Brinke's life, but the team is coming together, piece by piece. The artwork is absolutely wonderful throughout and there are lots of intriguing moments that might be meaningless to a brand-new reader. I have a solution! Read every single Doom Patrol comic book from 1963 to 2011 and then come back to this series! You might get a lot more out of it. Read Full Review




Scooby Apocalypse #6
Score: 8.8/10

What Chris Said:

Perhaps the strongest issue of this series to date.  While it did border a tad on cliche, it allowed us to see what makes one of the more conflicted characters in the book tick.  The fill-in art does not look out of place, it actually does a wonderful job of keeping up with Mr. Porter.  Again, I'd be remiss not to mention the excellent color work from Hi-Fi.  Read Full Review




Wonder Woman #8
Score: 8.4/10

What Jim Said:


While I am curious to see how others feel about this issue, I liked it as another piece of the larger puzzle that is Greg Rucka's Wonder Woman story.  This issue falls somewhere between Year One and the Lies, yet sheds light on both stories.  I loved the art and the ending left me wanting a lot more which I think was Greg Rucka's plan in the first place. Mission accomplished! Read Full Review


All-Star Batman #3
Score: 8.0/10

What Eric Said:

All-Star Batman is somehow still kicking things up a notch after throwing the kitchen sink at us last issue and I'm pleasantly surprised just how intrigued I am at where this story is going.  Also, I found myself enjoying the Cursed Wheel backup more than I have here too because of how it's finally feeling like it's throwing Duke front and center and actually having things for him to do.  Sadly, I'm still not a fan of the art in this series and even though I find myself enjoying the story more, I don't think I'll ever really get into the art for this arc.   Read Full Review



Deathstroke #4
Score: 8.0/10

What Jim Said:

I keep liking this book more and more.  While Batman's appearance feels a bit forced, it's fun and promises even more fun in the near future.  The characters, story and art are top notch and I can start recommending this series to everyone. Read Full Review



Suicide Squad #4
Score: 8.0/10

What Reggie Said:

The wacky Russian prison break (the prison is Russian, not the break) comes to a fairly satisfying conclusion, despite the new threat introduced at the end of the last issue turning out to be no threat at all. Members of the Squad have clearly paired up during this battle, and that's sure to lead to some intrigue in the future. Complete with a nicely-rendered back-up, this title continues to satisfy and impress...satisfy my bloodlust and impress young children with violence, that is! Lord bless it. Read Full Review
